Letter: Compassion contagious

A quote from C.S. Lewis: "We ought to give thanks for all fortune."

Gratitude should be a natural response. Thank you to the lady who graciously paid for our groceries at the Richland Winco store. We were fortunately following her to the check-out counter. She wanted to "pass it on."

It was appreciated. Being in this place of humility gives us the desire to pass good fortune on to others. Thank you, dear lady, for your compassion of others.
